A garter belt is used to hold your stockings up. First, put the garter belt on after you have put your underwear on. Position that straps so that 2 are in the front and 2 are in the back in the same spot. Put your knee high stockings on. Clip the left stocking in the front and back, then clip the right in the front in back. Clip at a part of the stocking that will actually hold it in place.
